The tape is
recorded by Ad Delleman. It is in a grey Philips EL 3908 box and on a brandless
spool. It are recordings made in Noeboeai, and Pasi on the Padaido islands.
Side A starts with an announcement followed by songs of a children choir with
some wind disturbances. After 22’00 guitar songs from the youth of Noeboeai on
the gallery of the posthouse, there seems to be a guitar and a ukulele.
Sometimes one can hear the environment. Side B starts with a flute and drum
orchestra playing the Dutch national song. Followed by a speech in Bahasa and
songs by a children choir. At 14’43 the flute and drum orchestra, 18’30
Children choir, 20’44 the song “Vader Jacob” with clapping, then another song
with the sounds of nature on the background. It could be the children under the
leadership of a member of the village council of Padaido, between 25’12 and 26’20
there is silence, followed by a comment of Ad Delleman about a pig feast in Pasi,
he describes extensively what happens while one can listen to tifa songs and
the general revelry till the end of side B. Dutch, Bahasa, local Papua languages
The digitised tape is part of the audio collection of the foundation PACE Papua Cultural Inheritance. For more information or any messages or correspondence contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
